Remodel of 1980's Home - Kitchen

This 2-story modern home was custom built in the late 1980’s for the owners.
They are avid cooks and were tired of working in a dark, closed-off space with little natural light that could give them little aesthetic enjoyment. The kitchen is now a fresh, open space, with granite countertops, dark cherry stained cabinetry, a contrasting pigment-stained island for added working space, and large windows that provide a panoramic view of their wooded lot, as well as letting in natural light. They can now enjoy making their favorite recipes in an inviting, light-filled environment. Photo by Andrea Rugg.

The body is 3'6" wide and deep, and the granite hangs over 1' where the benches are.

We acquired this granite through Capital Granite (a local fabricator). It was called Venetian Gold. However, I just looked on their website, and I don't see it there anymore - maybe they discontinued it? Or maybe they are just calling it something else now. Here's a link to the page I'm looking at:

Love the windows. The panoramic view while cooking, doing dishes or enjoying a glass of wine while relaxing with a friend at the island is beautiful!
